11:20pm
not going to see as many widespread low clouds like we had this morning. to the west, the high clouds, an outer fringe of a weather system that stretches north of hawaii, tapping tropical moisture up out of the south. it's starting to get its act together as we head into monday and tuesday. this is going to approach the coast, primarily across the north bay. tomorrow morning, maybe patches of low clouds here and there. during the afternoon, high clouds passing by the bay area as we head through the afternoon. sunshine mixed with increasing high clouds as we head into monday. by sunday night, we'll see more mid and high-level clouds stream on through. tuesday, you see the clouds here. as we head into the afternoon, you're starting to see the rain in the north bay. the rain line will start to slowly move to the south as we head into tuesday morning and carry over into wednesday where skies clear and temperatures climb again for the second half of the week. tomorrow close to 70 in san jose. low 70s inland around the tri-valley. livermore, a bit of a stronger west wind keeping temperatures
11:21pm
down a little bit to wrap up the weekend. low 60s in san francisco. a combination of 60s and low 70s across the north bay. we'll finish off the weekend on a dry note. more clouds on monday. tuesday for the afternoon into wednesday, that's the chance we'll get some rain and breezy conditions. but really not going to last long at all. look how quickly temperatures jump up thursday into friday. high pressure once again acting like a giant deflector shield in the eastern pacific. it's going to keep the storms off to the north. mid 70s next weekend and that makes sense. yes, second half of the week, we officially move into spring. it's starting to look like it there in the seven-day forecast. >> the wind's going to knock down the pollen. that's a good thing for some of us. >> for you especially. >> allergy sufferers will be happy. coming up next, fitness gurus are ditching marathons for a new kind of race, spartan races. the name should give you just a little bit of a clue how grueling they are. hello?
